Waiting on Wednesday: The Forgotten Room by Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Yesterday's Top Ten Tuesday post was all about 2015 books that we are still waiting for, but I've also got my eye on quite a few books scheduled for a 2016 publication. One of these books is The Forgotten Room, by Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig. You might recognize a couple of those names from yesterday's post, since Beatriz Williams and Lauren Willig each have two books coming out later this year (I just realized they kind of dominated yesterday's post!). 


From Goodreads: New York Times bestselling authors Karen White, Beatriz Williams, and Lauren Willig present a masterful collaboration—a rich, multigenerational novel of love and loss that spans half a century....

1945: When the critically wounded Captain Cooper Ravenal is brought to a private hospital on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, young Dr. Kate Schuyler is drawn into a complex mystery that connects three generations of women in her family to a single extraordinary room in a Gilded Age mansion.

Who is the woman in Captain Ravenel's portrait miniature who looks so much like Kate?  And why is she wearing the ruby pendant handed down to Kate by her mother?  In their pursuit of answers, they find themselves drawn into the turbulent stories of Gilded Age Olive Van Alen, driven from riches to rags, who hired out as a servant in the very house her father designed, and Jazz Age Lucy Young, who came from Brooklyn to Manhattan in pursuit of the father she had never known.  But are Kate and Cooper ready for the secrets that will be revealed in the Forgotten Room? 

The Forgotten Room, set in alternating time periods, is a sumptuous feast of a novel brought to vivid life by three brilliant storytellers.


The Forgotten Room is officially my first pre-order for 2016! What books are you waiting on?
